Commence College-BannerCommence! fills an underserved niche, providing adult, strategic guidance and mentoring during the multi-year college planning and application process for students competing for need blind admissions to selective schools. We educate and empower
students with achievement-appropriate college

Students benefit by improving critical thinking, writing and time management skills. These skills, we
believe, will benefit them in college and beyond.

We take great pride in the fact that our students are active members of their college communities, working as
Resident Assistants, leading student government, gaining internships, studying abroad and, most importantly,
graduating from college.
